What is Starlink?

Starlink, a project of Elon Musk, on which he has been working for a long time and which aims to provide satellite Internet infrastructure around the world, is under the roof of SpaceX. By the end of the project, the network will be created using thousands of small satellites and will consist of 12 thousand satellites. The project will be completed in 2027.

Starlink recently started operating in Ukraine after the deterioration of infrastructure due to the war. It looks like the SpaceX system will be used for internet access in many other activities by using only a receiver similar to a satellite dish on the ground side and building infrastructure on satellites.
